Director's Update

February 1, 2002

In the January/February 2002 issue, the FEMP Focus spotlights energy management partnerships. Partnerships are instrumental to all of us in the Federal Government in meeting our goals. By partnering with the private sector and agencies, FEMP is helping Federal facilities to implement energy improvements, streamline contracts, and maximize purchasing power. Whether they are partnerships with the private sector, other Federal agencies, other sectors within DOE, or universities, these collaborative efforts are advancing smart energy projects at Federal facilities. I would like to thank all of our partners for collectively helping the Federal Government to leverage financial and technical resources to advance Federal energy efficiency.
